Cucumber Beit Alpha F1

In stock


Beit Alpha F1 is suitable for growing outdoors, sow inside in April and put out after frosts. Pick the very dark green fruit at 15cm long for a flavour that is fantastic in salad. They can also be pickled. Price for 4 seeds

SOW & GROW: inside in April/early May in individual pots, keep moist (not waterlogged) and warm.  If planting outside, harden off once they have 2/3 leaves; they prefer a sunny and sheltered site and you may need to protect them from wind while they settle in.  Beit Alpha is happy to climb a low sturdy trellis, wires or canes (up to 1m in height by 1.5m spread).  Greenhouse growth is more vigorous; train onto firm supports and nip out growing tip when the plant reaches the top!  Mulch if possible, they respond to a mid-season liquid feed too! 

EAT: harvest and enjoy from mid-summer to early autumn, slightly earlier if grown indoors.  Small fruit can be pickled.
